We've had a bit of a readership spike today, specifically for the post called Jeremy Bowen's Gaza notebook: "I saw no evidence of Hamas using Palestinians as human shields", which quoted the BBC's Middle East Editor saying just that in a New Statesman article.

This great interest has been generated by a rumour on social media:
Soon the likes of Lauren Booth and Tariq Ramadan were tweeting their indignation at the BBC 'removal' of their hero from Gaza:
Jonathan Munro, the BBC's Head of Newsgathering, had to take to Twitter himself to squash the rumour:
...something Jeremy Bowen informed a fellow Tweeter last Friday:
So, now, relax Lauren, you man will soon be back in action!

  1. Bowen will wear this complaint from Israel like a badge of honor. To the BBC, this is a sign that he's getting it right. No lie too great, no depth too low for them when it comes to giving two fingers to the Jews. You can bet there isn't a single BBC employee who isn't proud of Bowen and cheering him on.
